Flow-Through Seed Treater
"It's simple but it works better than any other seed treater on the market," says Antonio Cerasaro, manufacturer of a new flow-through seed treater that attaches to an auger down spout, letting you treat only as much seed as needed.
As seed drops into the treater, it spreads out over an inverted cone. At that point the liquid treatment is sprayed onto the seed, coating it evenly as it flows by. A 3/4-hp. electric pump, with a 15 gal. per min. capacity, is used to pump chemical from a chemical drum to the treater at an even rate. It'll treat seed at rates of 900 to 1,100 bu. per hour, depending on the capacity of the auger. Rates can be adjusted by regulating either the chemical pump or the flow of grain from the auger.
